Dr. W. Lee Kraus is the Director of the Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.  He is also Professor and Vice Chair for Basic Sciences in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Professor of Pharmacology.   Dr. Kraus received a B.S degree in 1989 from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, followed by a Ph.D. degree in 1994 from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, with Dr. Benita S. Katzenellenbogen, where he studied gene regulation by steroid hormone signaling pathways.  He completed his postdoctoral work at University of California, San Diego in 1998 with Dr. Jim Kadonaga, where he studied the mechanisms of estrogen-regulated transcription from chromatin.   Dr. Kraus was on the faculty at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY from 1999 to 2010, rising through the ranks from assistant professor to full professor.  Since July 2010, he has been at UT Southwestern Medical Center.  Dr. Kraus’s research interests are related to the biochemistry, molecular biology, and physiology of signal-regulated gene expression.  His research has led to new information about the connections between hormonal signaling and the gene-regulating effects of chromatin, which has implications for understanding and treating breast cancers.  His work has also helped to characterize the estrogen-regulated transcriptome and identify thousands of novel non-coding RNAs.  His recent work has led to some surprising new conclusions about the activity of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1), an NAD+-regulated nuclear factor that connects cellular NAD+ levels to nuclear signaling, chromatin structure, and gene expression.
